javastain, this is so great!  I have some pink cotton that I might try out...I think if its knit then you wouldn't have to worry about the bumps so you can use any size yarn.  But I have a quick question...

would the dye in the cotton possibly be irritating? if so, dang cuz some pink tampons would be sweet!

Ok so last night I did some with my snowflake thread. It's 100% cotton too, and although it took a little longer, i really think the thinner 'yarn' will be a much more comfortable product... I'm off today to go to the 'upscale LYS' to scope out their organic wools and cottons... I'm gonna try some more 'models' and I'll let yall know the results of this experiement!

I can't wait to hear your results, 'cause Aunt Flo came a little earlier than expected, if you know what I mean. I may have to get my needles together and whip up a few of these babies.

I was thinking that using a knitting spool would work well.  The small ones are about the right size.

Ok, so I guess you just can't take this topic too far, but I have recently made my first attempt at DPN's (I can't do round needles either), I brealy know how to purl... but anyway, after last night, making the floss tampon with crochet, and being pretty sure that what Taloola said about stockinette (which I had to look up ot know what you meant Smiley ) that would be a better stitch but HOW!!! So I picked up the floss (just went for the gusto here) and some toothpicks that I filed with an emry board and put olive oil on... and I went crazy while the kids were napping... it will work. It did work, but let me tell you, my knitting is NOT pretty (and it took FOREVER)! I challenge a 'real' knitter to do some so we can see! Come on Taloola, I know you can do it! Maybe not with floss, but just regular ole cotton for now? Pleeeze! I want to see some done right! Please don't make me PRACTICE knitting! UGH! Who wants to practice anything! I just want to be efficient right away!!! Cheesy

What is a knitting spool? Maybe I need one!

So... one question about this.

These are stuffed with cotton stuffing, no?  And cotton stuffing in a wet environment tends to wander a bit.  So, what's stopping little tendrils of stuffing from wandering out of the holes in the crocheted tampon and staying in the vagina after removal?  And then bacteria growing on that, and then TSS...  This happens with tampons too, and they're a bit more solid.

I use a Divacup, which you have to sterilize, but which also has the bonus of not leaving any material behind when I remove it.  While I admire the eco-friendly urges behind this project, I'm not sure that I would be comfortable using it.
